Hi!
I tried to access the posted answer, but there was an error and it wouldn't open (pout).  Okay, so as not to be redundant, having identified Msgsrv32 is the culprit (having been to enough sites to realize that my incredible hang time, etc., is the result of this program) - and having discovered that I do not have the Microsoft Fast Find shortcut on my system to uninstall, what is the fix?  I'm desperate, I'm pathetic, I'm begging.

To extract from CD,
1st Change Directories to the X:\WIN95> prompt, where X is your
CD-ROM's drive letter. Then type the following: Note that this is an example.
EXTRACT /A /L C:\Windows\System WIN95_02.CAB [filename]
/A tells your computer to start looking for file at the beginning; WIN95_02.CAB
/L tells it what location you want the file to go.

You can substitute WIN95_02.CAB with PRECOPY1.CAB.
I always send my extracted files to a directory I created called C:\INSTALL.
So the above line:
EXTRACT /A /L C:\Windows\System WIN95_02.CAB [filename]
would read EXTRACT /A /L C:\INSTALL WIN95_02.CAB [filename]

Your line for extracting would be
 X:\WIN95>EXTRACT /A /L C:\Windows\System WIN95_02.CAB Msgsrv32.exe

Do that from dos. rename your old one 1st to Msgsrv32.old

That's a good answer, and I'll give it a try.  I assume the same holds true for Win98 - all precopy and cab files are on my hard drive as well, so it's a matter of renaming Msgrv32 to old and installing from disk again.  I got a lot to do, I appreciate the input.

No problem.
I never saw the original question.
The other files I listed are in case you're having trouble with Msgrv32, then extract all it's dependent files also.
